Fire Records are thrilled to announce that they have signed one of their favourite bands, Australian psychedelic pop outfit Blank Realm. Their new album Go Easy initially came out on a limited edition, vinyl only run via the awesome tastemaker label Siltbreeze and in Australia on the equally wonderful Bedroom Suck, but now through Fire it will be getting the widely distributed release it deserves.

Blank Realm are one of the most popular bands in the booming Australian underground and have morphed in to a modern day Royal Trux, as Pitchfork described them in their review, they create: "...a bluesy waltz in which Sarah Spencer's snarl hits Jennifer Herrema levels." Hailing from Brisbane, Blank Realm consists of three siblings, Daniel, Luke and Sarah Spencer, and Luke Walsh. Renowned for their ecstatic live performances and boundary-pushing, yet listenable records, the group have released several sold out recordings on labels including Not Not Fun, Digitialis, Albert's Basement and MusicYourMindWillLoveYou. The band's formidable live reputation has been earned over the course of over 200 live performances with acts such as the Kurt Vile, Wild Flag, Zola Jesus, Sun Araw, The Clean, Robert Forster, Wet Hair, Jandek, Grouper, Damo Suzuki and Royal Headache.

Their new album, Go Easy, is an incredible blend of psychedelic rock & roll and super-catchy pop smarts. Sometimes their sound approaches the post-punk desperation of Joy Division, other times it possesses the playful, superfuzzed psych of the Flaming Lips. More than anything, Go Easy has THE SONGS.
